Summer Reading

A great way for kids to not fall behind over summer break is to take part in a summer reading program. So many places are offering their own programs with great rewards. For quite a few summers now my children have participated in our library’s summer reading. They love checking in weekly and collecting little prizes and spinning the wheel to win some great coupons for free food at local eateries. Be sure to also check out the story time events as well, it’s always fun to relax and listen to a story. I’ll keep an eye out for more reading programs but here are some to get started with.

Dive into reading this summer!

Cruzin Mama

Local Library
Be sure to check out your local library to sign up for their Summer Reading Program. The Temecula Library’s Program starts June 9th. Your child will check in weekly to receive a little prize and to spin the coupon prize wheel. When your child completes the program they receive a book to keep! And don’t miss Pajama Storytime on select Tuesdays at 7pm.

Barnes and Noble
Barnes and Noble offers a nice little reading program. How it works is after your child has read 8 books and logged them in their Reading Journal, found on barnesandnoble.com, they bring in their Journal to a local store and receive a free book!
